What is the input of the touch sensor in robotics?
Currently, the most commonly used touch sensors for robots are tactile sensor arrays. Those sensors measure the distribu- tion of contact pressure at the fingertip area. Some of those sensors are commercially available, and they have a spatial resolution of 2 – 10 mm.
What is an expansion hub?
The REV Robotics Expansion Hub (REV-31-1153) is a low-cost education device that can communicate with any computer (Commonly the REV Robotics Control Hub or an Android Phone) to provide the interfaces required for building robots and other mechatronics.
How do I connect my control hub?
On the Driver Station page, open the menu from the top right corner, then select Settings. Select, Pairing Method. Select, Control Hub. Select, Pair with Robot Controller.
How do I update my control hub firmware?
Select the Control Hub. After selecting the Connected Hardware the Update tab will pop up. Under Hub Firmware select Download. Once the firmware has downloaded, select Update.
How many types of touch sensors are present?
There are two common types of touch sensors: capacitive touch sensors and resistive touch sensors.
How do you classify tactile sensor?
Tactile sensor technologies
- Capacitive sensors. Tactile sensors based on capacitive transduction operate by measuring the variations of capacitance from an applied load over a parallel plate capacitor.
- Piezoresistive sensors.
- Optical sensors.
- Magnetic sensors.
- Binary sensors.
- Piezoelectric sensors.
- Hydraulic sensors.
What are the different types of sensors?
List of Sensors
- Vision and Imaging Sensors.
- Temperature Sensors.
- Radiation Sensors.
- Proximity Sensors.
- Pressure Sensors.
- Position Sensors.
- Photoelectric Sensors.
- Particle Sensors.
What is a rev sensor?
The crankshaft sensor informs the ignition control system about the rotational speed of the crankshaft. The signal from the sensor is also used to stabilize the engine in the neutral gear and to control the intake manifold.
How many sensors does the Rev expansion hub have?
The IMU incorporates three sensors: a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis gyroscope, and a 3-axis geomagnetic sensor. This sensor can be used to determine orientation and location of the robot.
How do I reset my expansion hub?
Press and hold the button on the front of the Control Hub. While pressing the button, power on the Control Hub. Release button when the Control Hub LED begins to flash a multitude of colors. When the Control Hub flashes Blue then Green it has completed the reset and is ready to connect.
